Leaving Switzerland and C permit ( non-EU )

Hi all,
I'm leaving Switzerland at the end of this month. I got a great job in Germany.
I'm not an EU citizen and was leaving and working in Switzerland for 9 years. I got my C permit last year and I'm wondering if I will completely loose it. I'm afraid that I don't like the job there and then will not be able to come back to Switzerland. Do you know how much time i can keep it?
Thanks all

Re: Leaving Switzerland and C permit

It depends. Search the forum using the Google powered option for Abwesenheitsbewilligung ( Absentee permit ) - you might qualify for it instead of deregistering ( and losing it ), if you can prove that the center of your life can still be in CH.

If you are not being expatriated by a Swiss company, it will be difficult to apply for a C Permit suspension which, if approved, allows you to return to Switzerland and receive your C Permit back for up to 4 years.

If you are simply moving out for a completely new job and company, the rule of thumb is that you completely lose the C Permit if you are out of Switzerland for 6 months.

It seems that you are right, I called Bern and told me that I will definitely loose it if I leave for more than 6 months...
